How to divide by whole numbers

1.Draw a division house.

2.Write 17 on the side of the division house and 582.25 on the inside.

3.bring the decimal to the top of the line.

4.See if 17 can go into 5 if it can't try 58.

5.See how many times 17 can 58.

6.17 can go into 58 3 times.

7.so multiply 17x3 and you should get 51.

8.put the 3 next to the decimal.

9.Put 51 under under 58 and subtract the 2 numbers.

10.you should get you should get 7.

11.now bring down your 2 so the numbers 72.

12. now how many times does 17 go in to 72.

13.It goes in 4 times so do 17x4 and you will get 68.

14.put the 4 on the top of the house.

15.line up the 72 and the 68.

16. now subtract those 2 numbers.

17.you should get 4.

18.Then bring down the 2.

19.Then you see how many times does 17 go into 42.

20.17 goes into 42 34 times.

21. Carry the 2 up to the top next to the 4.

22.Then subtract 42- 34.

23.You should get 8.

24.Then bring down the 5.

25.Now think how many times does 17 go into 85.

26.17 goes into 85 5 times.

27.So then carry the 5 to the top.

28.Then it equals 85.

29.So then put the 85 under the 85 and it equals 0.

30.You also should get 3.425 at the top.
